Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. Help protect your home and family with voice and location alarms from First Alert!
As a mother to a 10 and almost 13 year old, fire and carbon dioxide prevention is really important to me. My son is near the age where we will be letting him stay home alone for short periods of time. By having the First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Alarms with Voice Location Technology installed in our home, I know that my son is protected incase something were to happen. It provides peace of mind to me and it’s truly essential to have your home protected with smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to provide protection to yourself and family.
When my kids were really young, we had a carbon monoxide alarm go off in our basement. I wasn’t sure what set it off and my husband landed up calling the fire department. We weren’t sure where the carbon monoxide was coming from. We were young and in our twenties and fairly new home owners, but we sensed something was not right. The fire department found out that our water heater was omitting carbon monoxide and turned it off for us until we could get a new one installed. Thank goodness for the carbon monoxide alarm, because when it went off it was the late evening and we would have been going to bed in a few hours. I always wonder what could have happened if we had not protected ourselves with this important device, it is truly vital to protect yourself.
First Alert was kind enough to send me this care package with two of their devices. What I love about First Alert 10-Year Sealed Battery Alarms with Voice Location Technology is that studies show that voice and location technology helps alert and wake up children when there is an emergency in the home. This makes me feel a lot more comfortable when I leave my son home alone, especially if he were to doze off or be busy playing video games.
Source from Journal of Pediatrics (2018): Maternal voice alarms woke 86 to 91% of children, prompting 84 to 86% to successfully escape procedure within five minutes of the alarm’s onset. That’s compared to 53% of kids waking to the standard alarm and 51% escaping.
Along with voice and location technology, this alarm also has a 10-year sealed battery. First Alert 10-year sealed battery alarms offer hassle-free protection that helps keep your home and family protected for a decade! Growing up, we always changed the batteries in our alarms every time we had Daylight Savings Time, but with First Alert, you will save money and you won’t be climbing up the ladder to change batteries when you get a late night low-battery chirp!
Now I’ll provide you with some valuable safety tips:
- Install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on every level and in every bedroom of your home.
- Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms regularly.
- Replace batteries every six months or upgrade to 10-year sealed battery alarms to eliminate the need for battery replacements for the life of the alarm.
- Alarms don’t last forever, remember to replace your alarms at least every ten years
- Plan and practice an escape route with your family.
